Since I have only had the Anker 5600mAh Portable External Battery Charger for a month or so, I have not truly been able to put it through its paces. However, I am very impressed with the product. It is easy to use, holds a charge, reasonably lite and sized, and reasonable price (on Amazon). After reviewing several pricier options on Amazon for a while, I believe that I made the right choose and will recommend this product on our Texas CHL and Personal Protection website DoubleActionCHL.info. It doesn’t add a great deal of charge to an iPad, but since this would be only used for emergency charging, this isn’t an issue.


  • Good size and weight
  • Reasonable priced (on Amazon)
  • Holds a charge for several weeks
  • Doesn’t get “hot” when charging, but does get “warm” which is to be expected.


  • n/a at this time

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
